ReactOS freezing during copying files

I have an eMachines e627 with 4GB ram and a 256GB SSD (SATA w/ IDE mode) and ReactOS installs fine up until 3-4% copying files depending on the time I boot it. I've tried it twice and the first time it froze at 4% copying a wine-gecko .msi thing, 2nd time froze at 3% at btrfs.sys. I entered through most of the install except set HDD to BTRFS. Help?

EDIT: Install freezes at btrfs.sys since the last test, about 3 more. Please help.

You can choose not to down-load Wine Gecko; you can run ReactOS without it.

The BTRFS driver was updated to the latest one, yesterday, so down load the latest build and re-test.

Whats happens if you leave the file system on FAT as the default is?

Freezes at BTRFS.sys, still.

Hmmm... thats interesting... This device does not happen to have a serial port? https://www.reactos.org/wiki/Debugging

It's a laptop; no serial port.

How can I help, then?

How are you installing ROS? CD? Does that same CD work to install in say, a VM? (Is it a problem with the disc?)

Can you install a different OS via CD to that laptop? (Is it a problem with the CD drive?)

If you have a spare drive around, does it work if you install to a normal HDD rather than an SSD? (Is it a problem with the SSD?)

My suspicion is something to do with the SSD, but I have no evidence to back that up. Unfortunately, the lack of a serial port makes debugging hardware mostly guesswork.

CD is perfectly fine in VMware 15 Player, SSD is known to be good as I had a Windows 10, Lubuntu, and Windows 7 triple boot on it a while ago.

I assume you have tested that CD in a VM from the same optical drive, is that correct? Because to me, it sounds like a faulty optical drive or a CD/DVD itself.

The CD was tested in a different computer, and using VMware I booted the VM from the CD and it installed in under 5 minutes, perfect installation, but the laptop's optical drive is also known to be good, as I installed Windows 7 using it. The issue is with ReactOS and I would like to know if there are any possible BIOS settings I can change, and I can make a list of ones I can change if needed.
